Gastric Banding

A less invasive alternative to the gastric bypass surgery is also available: the adjustable gastric banding – also known as the Lap-Band™ or Realize™. The band is placed around the upper part of the stomach through tiny incisions in the abdomen. When inflated, it can reduce stomach size, thus prolonging the period of fullness and limiting food intake.

Although less invasive and less drastic as the gastric bypass surgery, it can also be less effective. It takes longer to lose weight and patients must have more self-control since there is no "built in" resistance to sweet or fatty foods.

Your doctor can discuss your options with you, and help you decide which is the best course of action for your health condition.
